Distribution Analysis(Base Module)

Distribution System Analysis Software can perform several types of analysis on balanced or unbalanced three-phase, two-phase and single-phase systems that are operated in radial, looped or meshed configurations. The base module includes per-phase voltage drop and power flow analysis, fault calculations (fault flows and fault voltages), protective device coordination (by interfacing with Protective Device Coordination), optimal capacitor placement and sizing, load balancing and load allocation/estimation. Distribution System Analysis Software is also equipped with add-on modules to perform more specialized analyses such as predictive and historical reliability analysis, contingency analysis, harmonic analysis, switching (tie-points) optimization, and more, as described below.

Features and Capabilities

  • Power flow and voltage drop analysis
  • Fault flow analysis
  • Optimal capacitor placement and sizing
  • Load balancing and load allocation/estimation
  • Voltage drop analysis with profiles
  • Harmonic analysis
  • Switching (tie-points) optimization
  • Network planning
  • Distributed generation modeling
  • Reliability analysis (predictive and historical)
  • Single contingency analysis with restoration
  • Substation and sub-network modeling
  • Secondary grid network analysis
  • Arc flash hazard assessment
  • Protective device coordination
The following optional add-on modules significantly enhance the technical capabilities of Distribution System Analysis Software:

  • Network Forecaster: to view, modify and create time-dependent projects (using the Distribution System Analysis Software Advanced Project Manager) consisting in modifications to the network such as the addition of any load at a given date, change/replacement of power transformers within a substation, a rephasing/reconductoring project, network switching or reconfiguration, etc.
  • Advanced Project Manager: extensive tool that supports the collaborative and detailed preparation of a project that consists in modifications to the network with related simulations.
  • Energy Profile Manager: to perform time range analysis based on a combination of historical consumption patterns and real-time monitoring.
  • Reliability Assessment:provides a framework within which predictive and historical reliability assessment scenarios are run and the impacts of the related investment such as DA (Distribution Automation) can be evaluated and understood.
  • Transient Stability Analysis : to simulate the dynamic behavior of distribution systems with distributed generation under various transient events (fault application/clearing, large motor starting, disconnection of co-generation units, islanding, etc.)
  • Harmonic Analysis : to perform harmonic penetration analysis in electric power systems. It features single phase and full three-phase modeling capabilities and includes a large library of pre-defined models for network equipment and harmonic current sources. The Frequency scan capability included in this module is also available as an independent module. This analysis provides full impedance scan results and allows the user to see problematic areas even before installing harmonic devices.
  • Arc Flash Hazards Analysis: to analyze and promote the electrical safety for employees working on or near electrical equipment. It computes the necessary parameters required to assess the risk level and adopt the adequate safety procedures.
  • Dynamic Motor Starting Analysis: to simulate the starting of an induction motor or of a synchronous motor and obtain graphs of the results as a function of time or speed.
  • Load Flow Contingency (N-p): to assist in power flow related static contingency analysis. To create contingency events and single- or multiple-outage scenarios and compare to a base case.
  • Embedded Protective Device Coordination: while the Protective Device Coordination software is a stand-alone application, its installation with Distribution System Analysis Distribution System Analysis Software allows the user to access coordination functions and thus perform directly from the Distribution System Analysis Software interface analyses requiring protection data and design coordination schemes on a single platform.
  • Switching Optimization: assists in determining the optimal feeder configuration that will minimize losses, improve the voltage profile and balance the load between feeders.
  • Single Contingency with Restoration: to study the impact of single forced or planned outages on the electrical distribution system and find the optimal switching plan to restore electrical power to priority customers and to recover the maximum possible load in the affected areas.
  • Enhanced Substation Modeling: to model all the major components of the distribution substation and any sub-network such as the detailed modeling of an industrial facility.
  • Secondary Grid Networks Analysis: allows the power flow and short circuit analyses of heavily meshed secondary network distribution systems for any voltage level.
  • Geographic Overlay: to display raster or vector map images (geographical land-base such as DWG, DXF, SHP, etc) as layers directly underneath the electrical model.

Complementary Modules

  • Distribution System Analysis Software  Gateway: The Distribution System Analysis Software solution for the creation and maintenance of the network data model. The connectivity network extracted from the GIS is accurate, electrically complete, with actual loads and switch status; and this network model can be updated easily.
  • Protective Device Coordination: addresses Time Over-Current protection for Industrial, Commercial and Distribution Power systems. Features a direct interface to Distribution System Analysis Software to verify the coordination of protective devices, the maximum permitted operating time («Reach») and the maximum permitted continuous load current. The Arc Flash Hazards analysis module can be added to Protective Device Coordination .

Distribution System Analysis Software  is an extremely powerful tool to assist you in creating "what-if" studies and performing simulations to evaluate the impact of modifications to your network, actual or future.

With the newly added “Network Forecaster” function you can view/modify/create time-dependent projects in the selected period, that consist of any modifications such as the addition of any load at a given date (year, month or day), change/ replacement of power transformers within the substation, rephasing/reconductoring project, network switching or reconfiguration, etc.


All the data resides in standard SQL tables and XML files so it can be easily populated or queried by third parties applications. Distribution System Analysis Software can be interfaced with or embedded in other applications such as AM/FM/GIS system, DMS, NMS, OMS or SCADA systems and is available as a Microsoft ® Component Object Model (COM) for integration with other COM-compliant applications.
